So, yeah. Clay. She eats it. Hers is sourced from Colorado.

Words/phrases mentioned in this short 3 minute clip:

  • "Indigenous cultures"
  • "Reputable source"
  • "Talk to a taxi driver in New York City"
  • "Pregnant women"
  • "I'm not joking"
  • "Earth material"
  • "I'm not smart enough to answer that"

Here is why Shailene eats clay:

"Clay binds to other materials in your body and helps your body excrete those materials — that are not necessarily the best for you."

There's actually a documentary about this, called Eat White Dirt.

BTW here are some doctors explaining why you should not eat clay.
